When: Saturday 10th September 2022
Where: Zomba Plateau OR wherever you can run in the world :)
The Run4Reforestation is a sporting event aimed at raising awareness and funds for TREEZ and Zomba Plateau.
The Run4Reforestation is the main source of income for Zomba TREEZ
Funds raised each year go towards afforestation, fire prevention, sports sponsorship (in exchange for conservation efforts), environmental awareness and soon, green energy.
We can't do this without you!
WHAT YOU NEED TO KNOW ABOUT THE RUN:
This year, we are making a come-back and we are SOOOOOOOO excited about it.
The difference this year is that it will be a fun run, with the emphasis on the FUN.
We are thinking fancy dress, or simply wearing green, and if you don't want to look silly, or wear green, you can also just run.
We will also be holding an arts and craft fair and a sustainability fair once again, showcasing environmentally minded organisations and businesses. More about this on the Sustainability Fair page
And as in previous year, we will hold a raffle with the most AMAZING prizes:
And if you can't make it to Zomba, you can partake wherever you are in the world.
There will be 3 different race distances: a 5km, a 10km and 21km.
There will be a registration fee for those attending the actual event: MK4,000 for Malawians and MK10,000 for non Malawians.
For those running elsewhere, we kindly ask that runners donate to the TREEZ JustGiving page, or even better, do their own fundraising to help TREEZ continue with its conservation work
It will be fun :)
WE DID IT!!
You ran all over the world, from Australia to Alaska, from Ghana to South Africa, in the heat, in the cold, in your living room, in your local park, on treadmills etc. You all did an AMAZING job and we thank you for your efforts.
I ran my second ever 21km distance and did not feel particularly thankful to Adrian who set the Plateau courses. The uphill up the Potato Path was brutal! I admit to slowing to a walk for the last third. The steep downhill towards the Mulunguzi dam was equally hard but this time on my knees - and then my will power to finish was very nearly sapped out of me by the last kilometer of slight up hill right before the end. Mike and Pete who ran with me, got me through and mentally dragged me those last few hundred meters. What a joy to be greeted by Filly, Caitlin, Kate and a few of the curio sellers, cheering us on :) Not sure I will be able to do the same this year, but I can but try :)
CAN WE DO IT AGAIN???
YES WE CAN!
Can we do better this year??
